>30%: High in proteins such as beans, nuts, meats and dairy. A chicken breast has about 20 grams of protein just to give you an idea. Normally you want around 30 percent of your calories to be from protein so anything higher would be "high protein".

A 41-year-old member asked:

Is it a problem if my doctor uses psa (protein specific antigen) tests instead of a digital rectal exam for the prostate?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Lester Thompson
Pathology 33 years experience
No: Prostate specific antigen (not protein) is a very sensitive marker of prostate function. It very frequently will be elevated before any abnormality is detected by digital rectal exam. However, nothing beats a good clinician being able to feel something on exam. So, really, the two work together to achieve the best results.
